For 10 years, Darren Wilson has traveled the globe in an attempt to film God. He has created five wildly popular feature films, and in the process amassed thousands of hours of footage of God's supernatural power and love on display in real world situations. He considers his newest endeavor to be the next logical step in his personal journey from skeptic to true believer.
He has stepped out of the big screen and into a smaller one, with a brand-new television series. Adventures With God
, Wilson's new 30-minute weekly show, is unlike anything that's come before it and is Wilson's attempt to raise the bar for Christian
television. "Most of what I see on Christian TV is kind of par for the course and not super innovative—it's a lot of preaching, a lot of teaching and not a lot of entertainment," Wilson says. "I wanted to make a show that not only dealt with big faith issues, but was also a lot of fun to watch."
To do this, Wilson mixed his extensive archives with new adventures never seen by his audience before. As Wilson explains the concept, "Each episode centers on a question, like 'What role does desperation play in God moving on your behalf?' or 'Why is faith so difficult?' We then built the episode around that question, sometimes using
adventures from my past films, and other times using brand-new adventures we've filmed recently. Everything moves at a brisk pace between adventure, behind-the-scene footage and roundtable discussions, so you're completely sucked into wrestling with this question in as entertaining a way as possible."
